Just at the base of the mountain. Lots of personality. 2 big warm open fire places. Just what the doctor ordered after a trip to the top of the freezing mountain. Some old leather lounges to relax on. Does a good roast but quite pricey for location. Has an outside beer garden, 2 x pool tables and was playing some... More

I can see why this place has been open for so long- the location is great! Large trees everywhere, closest place to warm your hands around a mug after playing in the snow. I have been here only twice so my review isn't as balanced as it could be - first time It was one of my favourite places to... More

My wife and I stopped at the Tavern for coffee and cake. The cake was fresh, the tea and coffee hot, the service friendly and fast. The tables were set in a light bright area with floor to ceiling windows looking out over a wooded hillside. I would definitely come back here again!

Passed through Fern Tree on the way to Mount Wellington, looked interesting so we decided to catch the local bus and come up for the day. Lovely quiet spot that felt vey peaceful. Not much in town where we got off the bus, except a few houses, a nice tavern where we had an enjoyable lunch, a small old wooden... More

We ordered the schnitzels as we had heard great things and wanted to see just how big they were. Well they were huge, but tasted awful. Vinegary and sour. Disappointing as we live locally and wanted this to be our local pub. Won't be back.

Nice pub and fabulously friendly service. Food was perfect too. We drove from Kingston Beach back around toward Hobart so it was a terrific place to break for lunch.
